Each week CK Engineers will be trying to give you a picture of the state of one of the disciplines we work with, the Validation Engineers jobs market. Whether you are a Validation Engineer looking for a new role or an employer seeking new Validation Engineers to join your team, keeping up to date with industry news that impacts you is essential.
Our tracking is based on each week screening some of the UKs leading vacancy boards for how many Validation Engineer jobs have been advertised within the last 7 days. Please bear in mind that there is likely to be some repetition across jobs boards and some duplicate posting but our goal is to build up a picture of trends over time.
This week’s summary is for week commencing 1st November 2016 for the past week and relates to Validation Engineer vacancies posted on:
- The Engineer
- Just Engineers
Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 397 Validation Engineer jobs were published in the last week,
- 291 permanent roles
- 106 contract roles
There are just 12 fewer roles engineering jobs advertised this week with contract jobs reducing by 11 and permanent by just one. Whilst there has been a steady decline over the last three week, the drop only equates to 4% and just over 2% a week. At this point in time we do not feel there is any cause for concern, but as usual we will continue to monitor validation engineering recruitment.
